  1. 1. I’m much too young to go abroad
    To teach and preach the word of God,
    But I can show I know it’s true,
    Quite simply, by the things I do.
  2. 2. The people in my neighborhood
    Will judge the gospel bad or good
    By how I act at work and play,
    And not just on the Sabbath day.
  3. 3. I’ll take my friends to church with me,
    Where I will act with dignity.
    My rev’rence and my happy face
    Will tell them it’s a sacred place.
  4. 4. In ev’rything I do they’ll see
    I am what I profess to be.
    Then when the elders find their door,
    they’ll say, “Come in and tell us more.”
